on is vacationing. and blood shed and the u.n. estimates up to 1,000 people may have been killed by deaf's -- muammar qaddafi's mercenaries and it is horrible situation. >>clayton: what is happening right as we are on the air right now and what just moved, a son has confirmed, his son, has confirmed that troops, his own muammar qaddafi troops have fired and opened up shooting missiles, and opening up fire, on civilians. and they said that has not happened to this point. and now you understand why president obama has called on libya to stop this incredible violence and is calling on the national interests of the united states saying we need to put sanctions on libya, freeze the assets of the muammar qaddafi family, the three sons and the daughter. and, little did we know, people may have forgotten, the family has a house in new jersey, a house in new jersey.
7:03 am
which would be subject. what does that mean? so they would not have access? they would not have access to it and it is frozen? would there be armed guards? >>peter: an order would be attached to the house and it would be padlocked and not be allowed to be an asset of muammar qaddafi or libya. but this is in the wake of some people being critical of the united states' response to libya. the united states is saying, well, we did not want to upthe gun and put our american citizens at risk but we know the united kingdom sent the military vessel to reof my -- to remove their citizens from the country. and the united nations' ambassador was not present from the united states at the u.n. for the security council discussion on this important issue. >>alisyn: the white house said they did not want to jeopardize the 600 americans still inside tripoli until they got out. so, yesterday they get out and the president issued that executive order which had strong
7:04 am
language about what muammar qaddafi is doing and how horrible it is and what he is doing to his people. they also took the step of freezing qaddafi's assets and we know before that happened he managed to deposit $4.8 billion into london, perhaps to protects the little assets he had remaining. >>clayton: a guy in london brokered through a swiss bank said when they found out who the money belonged to said, no thanks, no, we don't want anything to do with it because i don't want to be responsible for having, carrying money for someone with blood on their hands and the money was frozen. but that did not stop it because now the money has been sent around the world into all kinds of different bank accounts. >>alisyn: and, beautiful mansion we saw in new jersey where we showed pictures that is a 2-room mansion and he has, i cannot believe this number, a
7:05 am
$16 billion mansion in london that is also being frozen. that public is astounding. but he has properties, commercial prosecutes, and he has billions stashed in different places. >>clayton: and 600 americans were trapped that may have been, could have been hostages if there was a hostage situation and the u.s. chartered a ferry to get americans out of libya, going to malta, and listen to some of the passengers on the vessel and they are worried about family members who are still trapped. take a listen. >> we still are very sad because we have family in libya. they are stuck and cannot get out. he is killing them. he is, they say he has chemical weapons. he could ... he is worse than saddam. he could do anything. he could bomb the whole of libya. he doesn't care. he is mad. him and his sons.
7:06 am
ridiculous. he needs to be stopped. >> i have friends standing on the streets and mercenaries came around and i had a group of friends, three, they were shot down. killed. >>clayton: not just the mercenaries but we are learning of the civilians who do support qaddafi, have been armed by him. >>alisyn: that is what the associated press is reporting and the big fear is that he will somehow use biological or chemical weapons. >>clayton: we will speak to experts later on the show and by the end of the week, will he still be if power? there are people literally trying to take tripoli, off six generals are trying to take tripoli. >>peter: and one town has been taken as well as benghazi taken by the citizens. allegation we will bring you the latest through the show. and an attack at iraq's largest

7:25 am
and disagreement. and neither party gets everything it wants. both sides will have to compromise. >> cuts include $2.7 in earmarks and $650 million to the federal highway administration and $468 million to the education department and $30 million for a building at the smithsonian and $29 million for helping farmers get high-speed internet. the g.o.p. address made clear republicans do not want to shut down the government but spend has to be dramatically cut. >> our goal as republicans is to make sensible reductions in the spending and create a better environment for job growth not to shut down the government. getting our debt and deficits under control is the first step we can take, and the system most important step washington can take to get our economy moving, and create the jobs we so badly need. >>clayton: according to a new poll 60 percent of americans want to avoid a government shut down even if it means passing a
7:26 am
budget they do not like. back to new york. >>alisyn: interesting poll. thank you, peter. >>clayton: we are hear a lot of you saying, shut down the government because we do not want the government spending money it does not make. >>alisyn: we remember from 1995,st that mean we do not get our mail? it is hard to predict what will happen. >>clayton: he was shot nine times while serving his country in war and he is heckled by fellow classmates at columbia university. should the behavior be punished? stay tuned. ♪ [ folk pop ]

7:47 am
their right to be able to speak out. however, their immature actions, if my mind are unacceptable and they should issue an apology. >>alisyn: the president of the university also got a verbal message through someone to the veteran would was heckled. should he have said something more publicly? >>guest: that is the discretion of president. that's his discretion. it would be nice if he made a public statement, it would be mice and i am sure anthony would feel better. >>alisyn: in juxtaposition to how the president of colombia acted when the president of iran, idea idea came, and the president of colombia gave him a public introduction and supported his appearance so why not make a public statement at a podium in support of this heckled veteran?
7:48 am
>>guest: the incident with ahmadinejad was a bit different if that it was a public forum and this was the university senate student-run discussion. however, i to believe this is something this should be addressed and he can get, he can speak about it and have a public forum concerning this issue especially bringing back rotc, this is an instrumental time at colombia trying to bridge the gap between the civil and military so it is not a bad idea to hold a public forum and speak of the incident and how the university feels toward the veterans and the rotc. >>alisyn: what do you want to say to those students would heckled your colleague and who may not really understand what you are fighting for? >>guest: i want to say that we fought forrite right to be able to heckle. however, you should do a bit of research and get to understand exactly what this veteran went through when he fought and bled
7:49 am
for your right to execute the heckling that you did. it's unfortunate and you should take a good hard look at yourself and think about how that would feel if you were in that position especially being a disabled veteran. >>alisyn: absolutely all the sacrifices he made from the u.s. military veterans at colombia thank you for coming. after a trainer was drowned by a kill are whale, seaworld trainers were pulled from the tank but now exactly a year later, they are considering letting them slowly back in. well, our next guest says he has proof that it is not safe. and libya's muammar qaddafi offering to now arm his supporters as protesters are gunned down in the streets.

to hear the evidence presented to the people. osha has a good point, they have been investigating this for a long time and they found 75 serious incidents involving trainers with killer whales. sea world has managed to keep them quiet. four people have died. and, again, the stress of captivity according to the scientists is so great open the whales they act out. >> and it is interesting because you say from what you have learned that the death of the train are was not an accident, it was murdered. what do you mean? >>guest: this was an intentional act, that the whale who had been involved in three other deaths, two other deaths, deliberately pulled her down into the water. i will not go into the grew some details out of respect for her family, but if you read the police report, if you read the autopsy report, he mauled her and did not just play with her, and she joined. >> seaworld says we put
7:56 am
safety measures if place but does it go far enough? after discussions with scientists and having the large mammals locked up their entire live that no amount of safety measure will improve. >>guest: there are different questions. should they be kept in captivity? should they be trained to perform stunts and should the trainers be in the water? seaworld has a legal obligation to provide education to the public about the animals in the wild, and in the wild, they are not ridden on or surfed by trainers. people and whales do not interact in the wild. here they are together in captivity which is dangerous situation. >>alisyn: your book will be fascinating "death at seaworld," and we will find out what happens with the hearings next month. thank you for a preview. >>clayton: a baby locked in a bank vault for hours. how did this happen in the first place? and you probably heard that eating organic food is better

8:06 am
you, governor. >>governor huckabee: good to be here. claw -- >>clayton: all eyes on wisconsin. is this the beginning of the 2012 campaign? governor walker is waiting for the democrats to come back after hiding in hotels in other states. does this set the stage for 2012 and what should governor walker do? >>governor huckabee: he is doing all he can do. he has to hold a firm line until the democratic senators show up. if you have children and the kids are on the floor screaming and yelling you do not say we will negotiate because then they are in total control. and you cannot reward a tantrum. you have to say, grow up, get back, it is down like adults and if there is something we can work out, we will, but the governor cannot give as long as they're over there awol. >>clayton: two weeks ago you said, when you are in negotiation, you come with your big of the guns, first, the
8:07 am
biggest argument. so the governor came with collective bargaining and they said that was a nonstarter and they came back and said if you take that off the table we are willing to concede the pension benefits and health care benefits. wasn't that a compromise? did they come back with that? >>governor huckabee: keep in mind they cannot do anything until the democratic senators get back in their desk so there is nothing to negotiate as long as you don't have a quorum in the senate. and the governor, there is no way he can make the concession prior to their being some kind of back channel conversation indicating that while they may get some crumbs he cannot give them everything they want. >>peter: he is far sighted if terms of seeing the problems were coming down the line in the state. >>governor huckabee: what was great timing, my book came out this week "simple government," page 35 i basically said that there is a coming train wreck and it is the result of public employee unions at the
8:08 am
state level. and the reason is, because the public employee union wages are 30 percent better and benefits are 70 percent better than the nonunion state employees. you can do the math on this and look at what happen happen not just in wisconsin. the bigger crisis is california, the poe cuss is on wisconsin because that is where the yelling is but you look at numbers, california is swimming in red ink they are sucking air. new york has a problem. illinois has a problem of the indiana has a problem. ohio. all because the union wages and benefits are significantly higher at the public employee level. so, i felt almost validated in the credibility of the book talking about things like the public employee unions that are clearly front page everywhere. but this is in the a big surprise. >> these are things that the democratic, well, the governors association in washington is having a meeting and the democratic governors met with president obama and they talked
8:09 am
about ways to bring in, innovation, to their states and the president's point is if you completely cut off the cash, the money, you lose more jobs and you lose innovation. does he have a point? >>governor huckabee: not if you are talking private sector but there is a difference between the private sector and the public sector which operates as a monopoly. government functions in the areas in which this isn't competition. that is what government is. and does. so, if you have a public enterprise acting as if it is competitive when it isn't, then it will have a disproportionate advantage and that is why, yes, you need innovation but that needs to be competitive marketplace with risk and reward commensurate to the value of what they put forth. >>peter: when you look at these legislators who are on the lam, what does that say to people across the country about
8:10 am
government dysfunction or corruption? and does it erode confidence in our government totally when they see people screaming in a legislature as if it is some, underdeveloped country, screaming at each other. >>governor huckabee: it does look more like a third world country where you see the fistfights of the floor of the legislative body. the accepts from wisconsin have disunder their oath -- dishonored their oath of office. i think it is very important to recognize that if they took a cue from president obama, when he was sitting around talking to the republicans, he said we won and elections have consequences. this just in, the republicans won in wisconsin. and elections have consequences. if they think scott walker is overplaying his hand as governor of wisconsin, guess what to do? go back and vote, lose the vote, and in two years if you were as
8:11 am
right as you say you are you will get the whole thing back. >>clayton: and now libya. every five minutes there is new news from libya and the white house yesterday calling for tough sanctions against libya, assets being frozen against the qaddafi family and criticism coming on both sides against president obama. was he quick enough. and concern over american citizens trapped this. do you think president obama's response has been sufficient and measured at this point? >>guest: i would say the responses are very measured. unfortunately they are measured if very, very low teaspoons rather than in cupfuls and that is a problem of the no one is afraid of us. i make a statement in the book that probably is very appropriate here: roosevelt said, walk softly and carry a big stick. obama's policy is apologize and throw appear -- away the stick. he said, in fact, and i quote, "we don't want other nations to fear us," yes, we do.
8:12 am
we want nations to be scared to death. >>alisyn: now that americans are out, it is different from yesterday. >>governor huckabee: my friend, a retired colonel of the united states army, professor of war college said it right: put the nation, three miles outside the borders of libya, park the ships there, put a no-fly zone, let no mercenaries fly in and no mercenaries sail in and make it clear you are surrounded, and let the libyan people know the united states is right there watching this guy. i to think we are days away from some of his own arm taking him out with a bullet because what they will be forced to do, to shoot him this crazy guy with the closes of lady gaga and the mind of charlie sheen or decide you will shoot your own people. >>peter: this is so interesting, will you stick around? >>governor huckabee: you have asked.

are making six stops in iowa. how convenient. >>governor huckabee: it is a nice place to be. this is where i stand kind of document for me. and it will be a very important part of the process in my determining whether there is validity in going forward because it is important if people support someone, they know, really, where he or she stands. one deciding factor is reaction to the message, one thing i will gain through the course of the tour, and reaction to the book and the message. and another thing is, is there organizational and financial support? and do i see a way through the primary process and on the finish line? i believe if i could get to the general election, i feel very confident about my opportunity to stand with obama and contrast but the process of the primary will be brutal, expensive, and bloody. >>peter: in terms of the poll numbers you are leader of the

pack at 18 percent and others are behind you, governor romney and sarah palin and gingrich behind you. but you've come to the conclusion in your own mind, i would think, that you have the ability to be the president of the united states. >>governor huckabee: if i didn't think that i would never have run four years ago, and i think even now, more than ever, america needs someone who has governed something is we see that with president obama. one problem is, he has only been a legislator. they deliberate rate but they do not decide. if you are a chief executive you have to make many decisions every day and you live with them and you stick with them but you understand you are responsible for the decisions. >>clayton: a lot of people are making waves about governor say, she has not lined up the top donors and others say, well, donald trump is lining up certain things so, with you, people of saying, well it is curious he is taking a christian

8:24 am
>>guest: so many people are now waiting for a kidney trance map, over 90,000 waiting. the way people were listed it depended on your time, how long you waited on the list which soups fair but we need to take other things into account. for example, if someone is very young and they have kidney failure their lifelong expectancy if they got a kidney is many years over 20 so it makes sense to give them a kidney that will last as long as they will last. >>alisyn: here is what the organ sharing network said. the age range would eliminate the extreme issues of a kidney from a very young donor transplanted into a recipient with just a few years life expectancy or a kidney from an older donor offered to a young patient. >>guest: it makes sense. if you think of the extremes you would not want a young person getting a kidney that would not last too long. so, this sounds like age

8:47 am
responded to this? >>guest: correct. they have been predictably very upset and have compared it to pearl harbor and the union president said that he compared the mayor taveras to the governor of wisconsin and said this is worse than wisconsin so, they are extremely upset and have not announced their reaction yet, but we know they are planning one, and they will consider all their legal options and we can be sure to expect something from them in the coming weeks. >>peter: the american federation of teachers said someone has an idea of wanting to arbitrarily and capriciously choosing what teachers are in next year. is this a cut costing budget maneuver or some kind of of the to pick and choose particular teachers that will be running in the fall? >>guest: well, where that comment is coming from, they are

saying if it was just the budget the mayor would issue lay off noticed to anyone but because he issued termination notices it is more then budget concerns at work here, and because they issue termination notices seniority is not a factor and all teachers have to reapply so schools will be open in providence next year but we do not know who the teachers are and by determinenating everyone he eliminates seniority. >>peter: has anyone spoken out on behalf of the mayor's move? >>guest: to my knowledge, no, and pretty much everyone else is staying out of it. >>peter: keep us up to date on this. governor chris christie defending the budget to angry new jersey residents. >> i hope to replace the money that was not put in there but i have if place to get it from. >>peter: more from the heated

debris that you see lying around there. that they're going to start cracking down. >> peter: you mean, like the cups and things like that. >> yeah. >> that's what they're worried about. >> peter: what is this? i'd love to hear what people across america think about. >> interesting you say that, because the polls have been very negative. the polls, many done in terms of voters of business wisconsin, it's divided as to whether or not, support the public workers or don't support public workers, in terms of the protesters and what they're doing inside of the building. >> peter: see video like that, wonder how it can be. >> clayton: not just that state. seeing it in illinois, indiana and new jersey. and governor christy taking on another person at the town hall meeting. i love watching him do this. he doesn't shy away. he has tough questions why the is it state is having to put the burden perhaps on police and firefighters. take a listen. >> now you're looking to balance the budget on men and women of the police

's putting sanctions on libya, freezing assets of the gadhafi family, three sons and the daughter of moammar gadhafi and they earn a new jersey house. he has a large palatial palace out in new jersey that has been seized, frozen, there it is looking at it on the screen. that's the house and won't have any assets in the united states now. >> alisyn: he apparently was able to also secretly pass the money through a swiss intermediary 3.8 billion dollars and it's gone into one of the-- and they're now saving it for him. and he has lots of cash assets, billions of dollars in commercial properties, in
9:12 am
residential properties, but he may not be able to get access to any of this. >> peter: now that americans have been flown and ferried out of libya we wonder what the american response is going to be going forward. is it going to be harder? is it going to be more vocal. enforcement of the no-fly zone? some experts are saying the president had to pull back a little bit because he had concerns about people, americans on the ground and didn't want them to be held hostage there in libya. now that they're out, what in fact will we be doing. >> alisyn: didn't we see that? once they were ferried out, then he signed the executive order, the strongets line. the language is strong, but what i'm talking about, what specific steps will be taken? when you're dealing with a madman, whether his sons are going to be em bourgeaued or sanctioned or not, i don't know if that means anything at this point. maybe it does. >> clayton: some of the sanctions may take a while to take hold.

hear that local people want to do recalls on at least three of the democratic senators and that's the only way they can get somebody in their district to avoid madison, that's what they're going to do. like i said, if i was up for recall, if i had an election coming up i'd want to be back in my district ringing door bells, i wouldn't want to be seen photographed on tv hanging out in illinois. >> clayton: wisconsin state senator glenn grossman, we appreciate you joining us. please keep us up-to-date. all eyes are on wisconsin. >> peter: thanks, senator. >> glad to be on "fox & friends." >> clayton: important information withheld from a jury during a court case, leading to a man being sent to jail. what was the judge thinking? judge janine pirro is here with what could happen next. >> peter: should it be up to the parents or doctors when it comes to vaccinating your kids? we'll debate a landmark decision that could affect your choice as a parent. 0ó0yd

. >> clayton: "fox & friends" has been at the forefront ever the continuing debate over childhood vaccines and possible link to autism. the supreme court made a landmark decision that removed a parent's right to a civil lawsuit if they believe their child was harmed by a vaccine. here to explain what it means is mary holland, the author of a new book called vaccine epidemic and she represents stanleys of the vaccine injured. also with us, dr. mark segal, author of the book called "alarmed". they've been waiting to hear. >> what they say the only
9:25 am
place families can go for their injury claim is to the vaccine injury compensation program. it's a federal compensation program and what it says specifically, the families who believe the vaccines who thought they were defectively designed, it closes the courthouse doors particularly on 5,000 families who believe that vaccines do autism and mercury and vaccines was a defective design. those families now can't go to any court in the country. >> alisyn: meaning they cannot sue the pharmaceutical manufacturers of the vaccine. is there a precedent for this? some context not being able to sue a manufacturer? >> well, there are other statist statistic administrative pramgs. a and i believe the majority made a policy decision to keep the cases of vaccine-induced autism from going to civil court and that's an
9:26 am
extraordinary thing and no other industry i'm aware, alisyn, that has the same level. >> what you basically argue, i think, if parents aren't going to be able to hold somebody liable for a vaccine injury, maybe vaccines should be be voluntary. doctor, i want to bring you in. do you object to vaccines being voluntary? >> yes, i agree with everything mary says up to this point. except for saying vaccine-induced autism. i don't think that's proven, but i like her idea something is going wrong with the court system. what i'm concerned about is fair here. the only way that vaccines work is what we call a herd immunity, the entire herd is vaccinated otherwise the disease emerges. when there was a scare in brynn in 1998, the compliance went down and we had a reemergence of measles, which is a kill are. vaccines only work with a high level of compliance and a lot of times that has to be
9:27 am
mandatory. a lot of the mandatory vaccination of our infans prevents reemergence. >> alisyn: you had 98 compliance, how can choice give you that. >> you have to trust, i think the parents have to trust the science and we're in a place that parents are not trusting and 89% of parents say this is the biggest concern. the hallmarks of medical ethics, it's free and informed consent that's the standard. if you're going to violate that standard you better have powerful reasons to do so, i don't believe that our current federally recommended schedule of 70 doses of 60 vaccines for all children underage 18 really justifies that abrogation of free and informed consent. >> we talk about that on a disease basis, measles, poll yo, diphtheria gone down almost 90% of vaccines and small pox eradicated in the world because of vaccination.

government shutdown, now we've discovered a back drwr plan for both parties to get more into the budget. we're on top of it all. the cost of freedom at the top of the hour. we'll see you then. everyone has someone to go heart healthy for. who's your someone? campbell's healthy request can help.

9:46 am
their checks and i hear they're at a water park in chicago. >> who goes to a water park in february? number one. not only should they not got the money and check when they come back. they should have to pay for the state troopers who are looking for them just as we do in criminal cases. if you make up a fake claim and say i'm a victim of a crime and law enforcement investigators, they should pay for the state troopers. cold cases, other cases, this is a joke, it's unamerican. you don't take your fallen bat and go home. >> alisyn: what about the teachers? >> that's another one they have sick notes. >> who are the so-called doctors? and when i was a d.a. i used to indict people for writing scrips when they didn't have a basis. first of all, the teachers aren't teaching, the legislators aren't legislating. and who is paying for it? we're paying for it and that's a problem and that's what i'll talk about on my show tonight

9:48 am
he's moving, he's allowed to move his gun. they throw him in prison for seven years. i mean, i think gun right advocates across the country should be outraged and this guy is a classic example of what can happen when you've got a judge who isn't interested in the law, but his own again. >> alisyn: the governor did commute the sentence, but the case somehow continues. >> that's right, governor christie's to his credit, governor christy understands it wasn't adjusted, but the case is still on appeal so there's no time for a pardon right now. i think it's going to be reversed on appeal as well it should be. >> judge janine pirro on fire as usual for the people. >> alisyn: by the people, for the people. >> peter: what time. >> nine o'clock. >> peter: we will be there. >> clayton: coming up on the show to fix our country's money woes, tax foreign countries. that's what the donald says, find out what else he would do in a one-on-one interview, not a one on interview. with our own ali.

9:55 am
places ripping us off. >> you know, if you run for president you have privacy. you have a colorful past, a colorful life. are you willing to give that sort of privacy up to run? >> i've always heard that a really successful person, really does something big and great and lots of words can't get elected. if i decide to run we'll find out whether or not that's true. >> alisyn: it will certainly be interesting if donald trump gets into the race. >> peter: it's one of the most sincere relaxed interviews i've seen him give. did a great job. >> alisyn: thank you. >> peter: and i think he was kind of saying what was on his mind. which is good, nice to see. >> alisyn: i think he always does in some ways, he's sometimes unvarnished. >> clayton: and he seems always, comfortable in his own skin. this is what he thinks and he doesn't have have to think about the response. he he doesn't give political answers or what you would like
9:56 am
him to say. says what he he believes. >> alisyn: he'll have a decision in june whether or not he's running. >> clayton: hopefully he'll call you first, and let you know. >> alisyn: yes, donald. >> clayton: coming up on the show, more fishing on the plaza with bass pro we'll get ali outside in waders. >> alisyn: what? i don't remember this part of our lineup. >> clayton: see that cold water? ali will be standing in it to fish. >> alisyn: oh, no. >> clayton: she didn't know that yet. if you're going to fish like the pros you gotta wake up early like the pros. here's a tip. use a reliable alarm clock.
